About Shaw Communications

Shaw Communications is a Canadian telecommunications company with an estimated net worth of $25 Billion. The company was founded in 1966 as Capital Cable Television Company, Ltd. The company provides telephone, Internet, television, and mobile services.

The companies main competitor is Telus communications following the pending acquisition of Rogers Communications On March 15, 2021, Rogers announced that it will acquire Shaw for $26 billion, subject to regulatory and shareholder approval. This proposed acquisition was criticized by public lobby groups like OpenMedia, as a move that would reduce national competition in the Canadian wireless communication market by removing one of the four major competitors from the market in order for Rogers to take control of more market share in the industry.
